Evergreen, participating in the Evergreen community, and other topics
related to using Evergreen and open source software in consortial and
- *Management/Leadership:* programs related to the administration,
management, and leadership of Evergreen systems and staff.
- *Technical:* topics related to system administration, software
development, implementation, hardware, and integration with other software.
You may also submit proposals for *Pre-Conference* workshops.
Pre-Conference workshops are 3 hours long, in order to go more in-depth on

Pre-Conference proposals are due earlier than other proposals.*
